Abstract
We consider external reflection rainbow caustic,,; due to the reflection of light from a pendant droplet where the light rays are at an arbitrary angle with respect to the horizontal. We compare this theory to observation of glare spots from, pendant drops on grass; we also consider the potential application of this theory to the determination of liquid surface tension.
